I have always been a back-stage, behind-the-scenes, supportive role kind of a person. People who know me very well, or even those who know me only superficially, might be a bit surprised by this, because I have a fairly extroverted, bubbly—one might even say bold—personality.

I have nice … Continue reading ART ON YOUR WALLS, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING?
